Flexible AC Transmission System
What will I learn from this course?

You will be able to understand the basic alternating current (AC) power system and the reactive support – static versus dynamic reactive power, the need for and benefits of Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS). You will be able to identify and recognize the different FACTS solutions: MSC, MSR, SVC, STATCOM, FSC and the FACTS main components and their roles.

  • FACTS definition
  • AC/DC current overview
  • Active and reactive power
  • How to connect reactive power solutions
  • Capacitor banks
  • Mechanical switched reactor (MSR)
  • Synchronous condensers
  • Static var compensator (SVC)
  • SVC design process and comparison
  • Thyristor control reactor (TCR)
  • Thyristor switch capacitor (TSC)
  • SVC & SVC key components: step down rransformer, harmonic filter, cooling system, STATCOM & STATCOM key components: DC batteries, distribution board
  • MMC
  • Fixed Series Capacitors (FSC) key components
